Financial needed 2017

Dear Supporters,

I am writing on behalf of the VN Smiles Organisation. Over the past five years we have been providing children from poor regions of Vietnam with free dental treatments, housing and tutoring. Majority of these Children come from orphanages, broken homes and these orphanages centre is a haven for them.

This is only made possible though through the generous funding we have received from members of our community and the friend like you.

In 2017, April 14 to April 23 we need financial support in providing children immunisation. Immunisation protects children against many serious diseases, which continue to occur in the community and from which children are still suffering and dying unnecessarily.

Vaccines protect children against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, poliomyelitis, measels, mumps, rebella, Hib, hep B, meningococcal C, chicken pox & HPV.

We hope that you will be able to join us in funding the medication purchases. You can donate online at

Any support will be highly appreciated by us and the children that we provide a service to. If you have any queries please feel free to contact me through email at

Yours Faithfully,
Viet Anh Vu

PS. Please remember that you are welcome to join us on our yearly mission trip, just go online registration to register.

Thank you.

I am thrilled to announce that our Strike a Smiles drive has been a huge success! 
Through your hard work we were able to raise over $3500 to put towards the Water Filtration system in Nghe An, Viet Nam.

A tremendous effort – we can be very proud of what we’ve achieved.

I would like to thank you for all your efforts, it was wonderful to see the spirit and enthusiasm that was displayed in supporting our goal.

Thank you once again.
